Curious about making the switch to a fully electric, long range vehicle? Right now, your options are fairly limited.
Tesla currently has a stranglehold on the market for electric cars that have an official range of more than 200 miles per charge.
That cord, however, may loosen as major automakers are driven to roll out more options by 2020, including GM and Volkswagen.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the options heading your way in the next few years.
1. Chevy Bolt EV
General Motors revealed the production model of its first affordable, long-range car called the Chevrolet Bolt EV. The car is currently in production and will have a range of 238 miles per charge.
2. Audi “E-Tron”
Audi confirmed that it was planning the production of its first all-electric SUV in 2018. The new vehicle will be heavily inspired by the company’s E-Tron Quattro concept and will have three motors, giving it a range of 310 miles on a single charge.
3. Porsche “Mission E”
Porsche is investing more than $1 billion into a new facility to begin production of its first all-electric model. Dubbed the Mission E, the concept car will have a range of 310 miles per charge. In addition to a longer range and quick charge timing (80% in 15 minutes), the car will also be capable of zero to 60mph in 3.5 seconds.
4. Aston Martin RapidE
Based on the Rapide S sedan, Aston Martin’s newest vehicle in the works is a collaborative effort with Chinese technology firm LeEco. It’s expected to have a range of 200 miles per charge with a price tag over $200,000.
5. Volkswagen I.D.
With Audi and Porsche under their tutelage, the parent company, Volkswagen has vowed to deliver more than 30 electric models by 2025. The VW I.D. is an electric SUV that has a range of more than 240 miles. Production versions are expected by 2020.
6. Hyundai Ioniq EV
Hyundai’s Ioniq EV will be available in the US this winter, but only boasts a range of 110 miles per charge. However, it’s expected to be a very affordable option for all-electric models.
7. Ford Focus Electric
Ford currently offers one fully electric vehicle, the Focus Electric, which has a range of 110 miles. Plans are to release new electric versions of its most popular vehicles by 2020.
Volvo announced that it will roll out its first all-electric model by 2019, but the details haven’t been revealed. It’s likely to match the competition though, so expect a range of 200 miles per charge or more on a full-size coupe or SUV.
Subaru plans to launch a fully electric car within the next five years. It will probably be built on the company’s Global Platform, a vehicle base used to easily build a wide variety of vehicles.
10. BMW i5
BMW is throwing it’s hat into the long-range ring and reports indicate the vehicle will most likely be an SUV called the i5. In addition to an expected range of 300 miles, the vehicle is also expected to be fully autonomous.
